Detroit in WWI

March 6, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

| donation

A presentation and book signing by Elizabeth Clemens…
World war 1 was the catalyst that ushered in the mes that would define the 20th century: industrialization, urbanization, and the struggle for equality between social classes, gender and race. During this time, from 1914 to 1918, Detroit was a city rapidly on the rise, with spectacular economic, industrial, and population growth. Detroit in World War 1 offers a visual exploration of a city and a people caught in time of dynamic change-from the men who served the cause to the communities they left behind- who rose to the challenge splendidly and helped create one of the 20th century’s most remarkable and vibrant cities.

Elizabeth Clemens is an audiovisual archivist at the Walter P. Reuther Library, Archives of Labor and Urban Affairs at Wayne State University and the author of Images of America: The Works Progress Administration in Detroit.
